You Can Help Real Alternatives Help Women In Need In Pennsylvania!

Right now, in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Indiana there are women facing unplanned pregnancies who are feeling pressured to abort their baby due to tough economic conditions. Many are also pressured by others to end their pregnancies.

For some, itís the best news theyíve ever had, and the happiest time of their lives. But for too many women, itís the wrong news at the wrong time. Instead of an occasion for rejoicing, some women are frightened, angry, and without hope. They are teenagers whose friends and family may pressure them to have an abortion. They are college students who imagine their dreams of a bright future are gone. They are independent, career-minded women who suddenly feel their world is turned upside down. They are women who fear the emotional and mental abuse and abandonment of the person who fathered their child, but will not take responsibility for his family. They are women from all walks of life, all economic and social standings, and you may know one of them.

Real Alternatives helps pregnant and parenting women through its 1-888-LIFE AID hotline and the services provided by pregnancy support centers, social service and adoption agencies, and maternity homes, it funds throughout Pennsylvania.

Last year, Real Alternatives through its funded centers was able to assist almost 25,000 women throughout Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Indiana by providing pregnancy and parenting support from the moment of conception through 12 months after the birth of the baby.

Our nation continues to experience very difficult economic times.  Our Program has felt the effects too.  In down economies, typically the need for pregnancy support and parenting education services increase, and sometimes very dramatically.  Our funding has not been able to keep pace with the increased need for services at our sites across the state.  We therefore need to turn to you on behalf of the women and babies we serve who are in greater need than ever before.

You can help Real Alternatives achieve its mission to assist women in unexpected pregnancies by providing compassionate, practical, life-affirming pregnancy and parenting support. Here are some of the ways you can help:

  • Provide a tax-deductable donation of  $300 (or 82 cents a day) to help us provide life affirming support by a counselor to one woman and her baby.
  • Promote our toll free hotline, 1-888-LIFE AID, to all your friends and neighbors.
    • Forward links to our  radio commercials. Click the following links to listen.  These are 60 second  radio ads and are approximately 1 meg in size
